Ever the maturing businessman, Farmer John realizes that he must manage his time effectively. He has N jobs conveniently numbered 1..N (1 <= N <= 1,000) to accomplish (like milking the cows, cleaning the barn, mending the fences, and so on).

To manage his time effectively, he has created a list of the jobs that must be finished. Job i requires a certain amount of time T_i (1 <= T_i <= 1,000) to complete and furthermore must be finished by time S_i (1 <= S_i <= 1,000,000). Farmer John starts his day at time t=0 and can only work on one job at a time until it is finished.

Even a maturing businessman likes to sleep late; help Farmer John determine the latest he can start working and still finish all the jobs on time.


  • Line 1: A single integer: N

  • Lines 2..N+1: Line i+1 contains two space-separated integers: T_i

and S_i


  • Line 1: The latest time Farmer John can start working or -1 if

Farmer John cannot finish all the jobs on time.
